Re: T.v. just shuts off

If myou checked with the sleep mode in the menu and its off then you have a problem. If yo0u just got it today and they want to come and take the set and fix it SAY NO you want a new set . Hope you didnt pay cash for it. It was from a store?? good. It unrealistic that you should buy a new set and not even get a day out of it. i would dispute the credit card stop[ payment on the check do what ever you gotta do to get a new set. most store will jump to replace it as they dont wanna lose there commissions.. Speak directly to the manager and make sure they know it started an hout after you plugged in the set. Good luck

My Samsung hcn4226w won't stay on.

There are many protective circuits inside the set that will shut it down if a problem is detected. It sounds like there are intermittant detections of problems and the "restart" temporarily clears the problem. If the unit is no longer under warranty, open up the back with the set unplugged and try reseating all of the boards and connectors. The trip may have jared a few things loose. Update this with the results.

Samsung T.V. goes on for 30 seconds then no picture

If this is a flat panel LCD tv, this is a sure sign that the panel itself is bad. I have seen this before. Tv comes on works fine then within 5 minutes goes blank.

KDF-46E2000 turns off then back on by its self

* Most common would be a couple of capacitors in the power supply that are not letting the proper voltage to the lamp.
* The lamp itself is not working properly.

Power light flashing/ no picture

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
